The prize, which is worth US$15,000, will allow the Caribbean-based writer time to complete a poetry collection; it will also include one year's mentoring by an established poet, and the opportunity to travel to the United Kingdom to attend a one-week creative writing course of their choice at Arvon.

Writers must have Caribbean citizenship, be over 18 years, live in the Caribbean and have not yet published a full poetry collection.
